Toward the Midnight Sun : harp solo

by Nigel Westlake (2011)

Work Overview

Antarctica is a unique 40-minute Imax motion picture that portrays the history, science, delicate ecology and awesome beauty of the world's southernmost continent. It captures in giant screen format the mysterious icy expanse of the highest, driest and coldest continent and takes viewers to the home of penguins, seals and the other exotic life forms, as well as focusing on the activities conducted at many scientific research stations established by countries from around the world.

This adaptation of 'Scott's Theme' from the Antarctica film score uses the delicate timbres and sustaining power of the electro-acoustic harp to capture the haunting beauty of an Antarctic summer."
